Private dinner on the Dunes

Enjoy the magic of the Arabian desert with this ultra private tour and dinner

In the mid-afternoon our comfortable 4x4 and knowledgable driver will pick you up from your hotel and drive you through the highways of Dubai to the edge of the desert.

There he will slowly let some air out of the tyres while you get the first feeling of the warm red sand between your toes.

Once ready, we will head out into the desert for a spot of "Dune Bashing". As this is a private tour, you can "tune" how much activity or "bashing" you want.

As the sun begins to drop below the horizon, we head deeper into the desert where a private nomadic tent has been set up you. Surrounded by torches and candles, and lit up by a camp fire, the setting is ideal for a true Arabian dinner.

A camel will also be waiting for you a few short steps from the tent so that you can get some wonderful photo opportunities in some Arabic clothing and with the sunset behind you. Also, we have some boards ready for you to try some sand boarding down the adjacent dunes,

At the same time, your dedicated team are preparing a wonderful arabic barbecue with delicious salads, mezze and fruit juices which will be served directly to your traditional low table surrounded by large cushions and set on vintage arabic carpets.

A discreet Arabic Oud musician will also be adding classical arabic rhythms to this totally relaxing atmosphere.

After the sumptuous dinner, what better than some freshly brewed Arabic coffee and shisha (hookah) around the campfire as you watch the stars.

Finally, our 4x4 will take you back to your hotel.

Shop like a Local - Unique Shopping in Dubai

Everyone has seen the massive malls that the UAE has with thousands of stores and millions of glittery items to buy.

However, at Desert Gate, we know that our guests may now always want to shop at Western style malls and would love to get to know the hidden places where the true locals go to shop.

Whether it be local fashion, Indian dresses, carpets or otherwise, our expert local shopper will take you to place few tourists ever get to hear of or see. Visit the tailors of Satwa, the Fabric shops of Al Fahidi and the hidden jewellery wholesalers of Deira, this tour will not only show you how real local shopping and bargaining works, but will also enable you to buy unique goods at a fraction of the price found in the malls

In order to prepare, 2 weeks before arrival, we will speak with the guest and understand their tastes, likes and dislikes in order to tailor the tour to the guests specifications

During the tour, we include a couple of stops at local establishments for juices as well as local snacks.

Optionally, we can include a local lunch
